    WEEBLES Coast to Coast
    A Fifty State Adventure

    Pack your bags for a fifty state adventure in the Mayborn Museum's new exhibit, WEEBLES Coast to Coast. Visitors will travel, with help from Weebles characters, to each of the 50 states to explore U.S. geography, history and culture.

    WEEBLES Coast to Coast Children can pretend to go fishing in Minnesota, drive along the Pacific Coast Highway in California, join a pit crew in Indianapolis, Indiana, and so much more!

    Although fun for the entire family, the activities in this exhibit are primarily geared towards children ages 2 to 10. WEEBLES Coast to Coast

    Artifact Spotlight

    Artifact Spotlight This key was to the Waco Suspension Bridge when it was a toll bridge. Large numbers of cattle moving along the Chisholm Trail crossed the Brazos River in Waco. When the suspension bridge was completed in 1870, it provided an easier, if more expensive, means for cattlemen to move herds across the river. The Waco Bridge Company charged a toll per head for crossing the bridge. See the key and learn more about the Chisholm Trail by checking out the exhibit case in the Rotunda at the Mayborn Museum.

Parking Lot Update

    Parking Lot Update The museum's new parking lot, which is conveniently located in front of the building, is now complete. For special weekend events and Free Sundays, the overflow lot will continue to be the one in front of the Law School.

    Although there is construction fencing between our building and that lot, a new sidewalk running along University Parks Drive will be completed very soon for safe access.
